After winning away at Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night, you would have thought a 3pm kick-off against a struggling West Brom side would’ve been a piece of cake for Mauricio Pochettino’s men, but Salomón Rondón’s early strike soon put paid to that.
The Venezuelan striker coolly slotted the ball home after a very odd piece of play by Alli – and after watching this several times over, we still have absolutely no idea what he was trying here:
"The ball is lava"

Generally speaking, Alli isn’t enjoying too great a season – certainly not compared to his last two campaigns for Spurs, and it definitely looks like supporters are noticing the drop-off in form:
WHERE THE FUCK IS LAMELA I AM FUCKING FUMING NEED HIM TO REPLACE THAT USELESS FUCK DELE ALLI!!!!

Dele Alli gets the assist for Rondon's goal but it will not be discussed by pundits.

Dele Alli surely having the most hit and miss season of all time (admittedly still only 21). We were awful first 30 mins

Dele Alli is the biggest cunt in football.

Hey Dele Alli just touched the ball…. and only 40 minutes into the game…. #COYS
Why is Dele Alli still on the pitch? He can only score and he's not scoring this game!

Would be nice if the Dele Alli of last season turned up.

how is Dele Alli a professional footballer
— Alex (17-3) (@GIickman) November 25, 2017
He might be experiencing a dry patch, but is it fair to throw so much stick his way? After all, he’s still only 21.
What do you think?
